1 / 10
1. hare "野兔",做动词讲是“飞跑”之意,因为野兔跑得很快,但是 hare (v.) 的古义并不是“飞跑”,而是“harry, harass, frighten”,这是源于 harry 或者与 harry 同源,因此可以说 hare (v.) 是先受 harry 的影响,后受到 hare (n.) 的影响,在这两个单词的影响下就变成了如今的含义,野兔在受到骚扰、惊吓的情况下肯定会飞跑逃命的。
2. hare (v.) 今义“飞跑”=> 古义:harry, harass, frighten => har-"harry, harass, frighten": harry (双写r加-y), harass.
3. 因此 harry 与 harass 是同源近义词,都表示骚扰、侵扰;使烦恼、苦恼。
4. harry:Harry Porter从小就受到——袭扰,折磨。
harry 烦扰,折磨


harry: [OE] Etymologically, to harry is to ‘go on a raid as an army does’. The word comes ultimately from prehistoric Germanic *kharjaz, which meant ‘crowd of people’ and also ‘army’ (it also produced English harangue, harbinger, harbour, and harness). From it was formed the verb *kharōjan, which passed into Old English as hergian. This developed into modern English harry, and it also produced the verb harrow ‘rob, plunder’, now obsolete except in the expression harrowing of hell (which denotes the rescuing by Christ, after his crucifixion, of the souls of the righteous held in captivity in hell).
=> harangue, harbinger, harbour, harness, harrow
harry (v.)
Old English hergian "make war, lay waste, ravage, plunder," the word used in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle for what the Vikings did to England, from Proto-Germanic *harjon (cognates: Old Frisian urheria "lay waste, ravage, plunder," Old Norse herja "to make a raid, to plunder," Old Saxon and Old High German herion, German verheeren "to destroy, lay waste, devastate"). This is literally "to overrun with an army," from Proto-Germanic *harjaz "an armed force" (cognates: Old English here, Old Norse herr "crowd, great number; army, troop," Old Saxon and Old Frisian heri, Dutch heir, Old High German har, German Heer, Gothic harjis "a host, army").

The Germanic words come from PIE root *koro- "war" also "war-band, host, army" (cognates: Lithuanian karas "war, quarrel," karias "host, army;" Old Church Slavonic kara "strife;" Middle Irish cuire "troop;" Old Persian kara "host, people, army;" Greek koiranos "ruler, leader, commander"). Weakened sense of "worry, goad, harass" is from c. 1400. Related: Harried; harrying.
masc. proper name, a familiar form of Henry. Weekley takes the overwhelming number of Harris and Harrison surnames as evidence that "Harry," not "Henry," was the Middle English pronunciation of Henry. Compare Harriet, English equivalent of French Henriette, fem. diminutive of Henri.
